4 tbsp olive oil
500g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
1.5kg stewing beef, cut into 3cm cubes
350ml beef stock
3 onions, peeled & sliced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
150ml dry white wine

½ tbsp paprika
Freshly ground salt & pepper
300ml double cream

Method
1.  Preheat the oven to 150°C/130°C/Gas mark 3.
2.  In a large ovenproof casserole heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and lightly fry the mushrooms in batches until slightly golden.  Put on a plate and set aside.  Next brown the meat in batches and set aside, add more oil if necessary.
3.  Now fry the onions until softened and lightly golden, add the garlic towards the end adding more oil if necessary.  Add half of the beef stock and bring to the boil to deglaze the pan.  Return the meat and mushrooms to the pan and add the rest of the stock, wine and brandy.  Add the Dijon, paprika and season to taste, stir well and simmer.  Cover the pan and place in the oven and cook for 2 – 2 ½ hours until the meat is tender.
4.  Make the beurre manié by mixing the butter and flour to create a paste.  Set aside.
5.  Remove the dish from the oven and strain the liquid into a pan.  Keep the meat and mushrooms warm in a covered casserole.  Pour the cream into the pan with the liquid and boil, uncovered for a few minutes until the sauce has slightly reduced and has a good flavour.  Season to taste if required.
6.  Place the beurre manié into the boiling liquid, 1 tbsp at a time and whisk until the sauce thickens slightly.  Now pour the sauce over the meat and mushrooms and stir gently.  Keep warm until ready to serve with the rice.  Enjoy!

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders – Go Giants!

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home.  That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
